Does anyone have a copy of the old style easton (aluminum) shaft selection chart. You know the one that showed every arrow size from 16xx through 24xx. Their latest charts IMO are junk. Easton's downloadable arrow selection program also generates a very short list of arrow recommendations for a #60 hard cam bow shooting a 30" arrow outfitted with a 110g tip. The best solution it comes up with for a dual purpose target/hunting arrow is a 2512 and even the one is a super slam or 75XX and the other is an X7.
So if aynbody has there has the old chart, would you please scan it and post it here or pm it to me.

I have the 2004 Selection Guide but too large to post here, it's 5 pages with lots of info. PM me your email and I'll send it to you.

Got it and thanks for sending the 2004 chart. Unfortunately it's not it. The chart I'm looking for probably hasn't been seen by many of today's archers ( Pre Carbon era ). It was a one page chart (typically laminated) found in most archery shops way back in 1983-86 when release shooters were the oddballs of the sport.

Being someone who never throws anything away, I have an Easton Target and field Archery guide from 1991-92. This was when unibushings were new.... it goes as low as 1413 aluminum shafts. email or PM your address to me and I'll mail it to you tomorrow.... Just one finger shooter helping another.....That's what it's all about. I also have all the old tuning bulletins from that period of time that have charts in them....

That's much closer to the chart I'm looking for. The chart I'm interested in is formatted the same. Draw weight down the left and shaft lengths across the top. It shows the arrow(s) (i.e. 2117) and their spine in the individual cells. This chart should be of extreme value to every finger shooter here because it will help you find (identify) the best average arrow to shoot.
I used this selection technique 15 years ago and plan on doing it again since no database can account for how clean of a release you have. Therefore I try to start out with a lightweight longest and softest spined shaft (say 32") with a 110 grain tip, if it ends up being to soft I replace the 110 grain with a 100 grain and reshoot. If it's still to soft I cut off 1" of the shaft reinstall the 110g tip and reshoot. still to soft install the 100g and try again. I repeat this process until I'm bare shafting to the same impact points as my fletched.
My biggest problem right now is that I can't find the correct starting point using the existing charts.
Guys please keep digging.....

From Summer 1990 Bowhunters Warehouse Catalog. There's a Chart B for Ace & X7 shafts, too. Plus a section on add/subtract pounds for cam & string type variables, etc.
I had to tweak scan to get under 122kb. Original scan is 2.07 Mb & really sharp. If this is your baby, PM me yer e-mail & I'll send it along. If you want Chart B & misc. instructions, no problem. Lemme know!!

That's exactly what I'm searching for. If it's from 1990 does anybody know when Easton went away from this chart to their new format. If anyone knows of a later year please speak up or post it. In any case this great.
Thanks for taking the time to find and post it.........
